About Me


If you don't receive my swap or think it doesn't meet the swap requirements, please contact me before rating. I will never flake on sending and I am big on communication. One of my goals is to try and keep a perfect 5 rating and I work hard to do this. Please don't punish me because something might be lost or damaged in the mail and just needs to be resent. That is completely out of my control.

I always rate the minute I receive anything from a swap. Please do the same for me. Not because I am anxious to get the rating but so that I know it arrived safely.

If my swap ever arrives with postage due, please send me a message and I will mail you stamps to apologize for my mistake.


I am in my 40s and live North of Dallas, TX. Born in Oklahoma but moved to Seattle, WA in 2000. Lived there until 2013 and now living with my husband in TX.

I have a daughter who is grown. I raised her as a single mother. She is disabled and her and her boyfriend live with me.

Previous to Covid, I liked to keep very busy. I did rock climbing, organized ladies nights with friends, play a lot of games (online, board games and LARPs) and went to SCA events (medieval reenactments). Now we stay safe and don't go out much.

I have lost 60 pounds by eating low carb / low calorie. It is amazing how much energy you have when you eat healthy and drink lots of water!

My husband and I are gamers. I stream 3-7 days a week on twitch. I often stream making my swaps on my channel.

Recent News

1/6/22 - For a few years I lost my inspiration as my mother's health declined and we lost her March of 2021. As life has calmed down I have found the inspiration to create art again so I'm back! I look forward to making art and receiving art from you all

Favorite Crafts

I like to knit though I'm not able to do anything fancy. I mostly knit scarfs for friends and blankets for friends having babies.

I like to do paper crafts like pen pal letters and journals. I love the slow process of writing neatly in cursive. It is calming.

While living in Seattle I got involved in photography. It was a big focus as an art for me for many years but as digital has taken over film, I've found myself losing interest. As a single mother, I simply couldn't afford to do it anymore so I stopped. I do have many years of work that I often print out in little wallet size prints and mail to pen pals.

I like to draw. My favorite is celtic knotwork but not limited to that. A new fun night out I have started doing once a month is pottery painting with my friends.

  • I love to decorate for all of the seasons and holidays so I collect holiday and seasonal decorations.

  • I collect stickers and crafting paper

  • Magnets - But please no state magnets. I only collect magnets from the states that I have visited with my husband.

  • I have started collecting stamps (on the envelope with postage markings). So if you have a pretty stamp to stick on the swap, I would love that :D. I cut them out and plan to do a postage journal with pages covered in postage I've received.

  • State or country postcards with nothing written on them in an envelope.
  • State or country postcards for a state or country that you do not live in. Such as sending me a postcard from Italy when you live in Utah.
  • Postcards that are not work appropriate. I have all my swaps sent to my work address.
  • I am a recovering alcoholic so please nothing alcohol themed

Likes:

I love everything minus what I wrote as a dislike above. I prefer my postcards sent naked and stamped (unless the swap says otherwise).

Comment: Super Creepy ATC, I'd give you 5 more stars if I could. Thank you so much.
Response: I am so glad you love it and it got there safe! The background was made with a postcard I bought in New Orleans on a trip there and the face I cut out of a Spawn comic book back in the 90s. It is the favorite one I've made in a long time! :D

Comment: Thank you so much Rayce, I love the winter design. No we haven't seen snow this year. It's very rare here in SA. I'm surprised Dallas hasn't had any snow though. Glad to hear all is well at home now. Happy swapping.
Response: I'm glad you liked it and thank you for the heart. The snow seems to keep missing us and hitting to the West in Lubbock or North in Oklahoma lol.
